Uinta Brewing Co. Oak Jacked Imperial Pumpkin Ale
Tonight’s featured beer is Uinta Brewing Co. Oak Jacked Imperial Pumpkin Ale. This came highly recommended from the folks at Mission Liquors. Since I had enjoyed Uinta’s Punk’n Harvest Pumpkin Ale I thought I should try this unique offering from their Crooked Line of beers.
Uinta Brewing Company introduces the newest addition to their Crooked Line of beers, Oak Jacked Imperial Wood Aged Pumpkin Ale. “Jacked” is a very limited, seasonal beer, only 850 cases were produced.
Jacked is brewed with fresh pumpkin and fall spices and has been aging in Oak barrels for 6 months. The oak barrels add subtle nuances of toasted vanilla and bourbon notes. With an ABV of 10.31% (a play on the date of Halloween), Jacked is a big, unique pumpkin ale.
Continuing with the spirit of the Crooked Line, Utah artist Trent Call was commissioned to design the Jacked label. Each bottle is a work of art.
Pop the cork and pair Oak Jacked with flavors of the season!"
